I have a vague impression that it's from a western radio serial, probably the Lone Ranger. I don't know where I _got_ this impression, though--possibly from my uncle, who was one of the LR shows juvenile voices for a while and eventually wrote his dissertation on it. On the other hand, I may have invented the connection entirely. If I can get hold of Uncle Dave to ask I'll let you know what he says. Kate Catmull kate[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
